WittKieffer has been retained by Connecticut Hospital Association (CHA) to identify a broadly experienced and collaborative executive to serve as its next Vice President of Quality and Patient Safety, reporting to CHA’s CEO and President, Jennifer Jackson.
The VP of Quality and Patient Safety will serve as a key resource in designing and implementing effective solutions for the quality and patient safety challenges affecting hospitals and health systems, supporting the development and delivery of CHA’s advocacy message, and integrating CHA’s health policy and clinical support strategy.
Founded in 1919, CHA is recognized as an effective advocate for the collective interests of its member organizations, and this leader plays a prominent role shaping health policy in the quality and patient safety arena and challenges that hospitals and healthcare systems in Connecticut must address.
CHA’s members range from acute care hospital systems, to post-acute organizations, and the next VP of Quality and Patient Safety (VP) will be a key leader addressing the changing needs of these healthcare systems. The VP will ensure CHA continues to play a leadership role in the State and is expertly representing members during a critical time of industry change at both State and Federal levels.
The qualified candidate will be a member of the Executive Management Group, responsible for developing the Association’s position on issues involving the implementation of Board-approved statewide quality and patient safety initiatives, analyzing and leading opportunities to improve CHA’s statewide performance on quality and patient safety measures, and leading CHA’s statewide initiative to eliminate preventable harm through pursuit of high-reliability organization principles and practices.
